Unfortunately we've been up and down this road. This is a feature of the system. I
hate it too. All applications share something called the Find Pasteboard.
I feared that answer. Thanks for the reference!
this annoying “feature” has been around since the really early days, when Mac OS X was
still called NextStep.
Hmm. How come that never hit me in Mac OS X 10.?
I particularly dislike this when I switch away from TM
to do a find in a different program, come back, and discover that my carefully configured
search has been destroyed.
Exactly. I frequently switch from my TeX work file(s) to some packages’ manual PDF in
Skim, searching there for something, just to find the last search string from there in the
TM search after switching back. Same in the other direction. I can’t remember _one_
occasion where I found that behaviour useful. Completely useless “Feature”.
I’ve asked for a preference that would allow us to
decouple TM's search fields from the Find Pasteboard, but this has been flatly

search dialogues in Skims side panes. Also same with the mail search in Apple Mail.
